So many times I have bumped into artists around the place. Over the years I have trained as an artist and exhibited and hung out with artists. The last few years though I have tended to meet artists who either seem a little depressive or deriding. Not often but my friends know a lot of artists and then they will either leave with a dismissive parting shot or look at you with sheer disbelief if you did something even half interesting. It is tough out there and some of these artists look like they just crawled out from under a rock. Most of these guys I haven’t known personally or actually known at all. Some of my friends know some odd balls, I guess like me.
